Pumpkin Pie






Happy birthday to my blog! It has been a year already since I started collecting memories. I am so happy to have created this recipe and photo collection which will be further increasing. I also want to thank you for reading my blog and leaving lovely comments which make my days much better! 

And here's the new recipe! A delicious pumpkin pie. The recipe (I couldn't remember where I found it) called for store-bought crust but I made my own. I took the recipe of the pastry from Flan Patissier recipe and only added 1/2 tsp of cinnamon to it. 

Pumpkin Pie

15 oz/(425g) canned pumpkin (I made my own by boiling and mashing fresh pumpkin)
2 tbsp light butter, softened
3/4 cup/160g light brown sugar
1/2 cup/120ml milk
1 large egg
2 large egg whites
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 frozen pie crust sheet (or make homemade as I did, the recipe from Flan Patissier crust)



1)  Preheat oven to 180°C.

2)  Prepare the crust, according to the directions.

3)  Place pumpkin in a large bowl. Add light butter, and mix well. Using an electric mixer, mix in brown sugar, milk, eggs, egg whites, cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. Pour filling into unbaked pie crust.

4)  Bake 60 minutes, or until knife inserted in center comes out clean. Serve with whipped topping and enjoy!

  1. Happy birthday!!

    It's nice to see a blog reaching its first year. Even if the date is not so important, I think we like to celebrate things like that. Cos I think that, when we start a blog, we don't know how long it will last. And then, you see months pass, and keep with it, and you fell good about yourself, is not??

    So congratulations, and thanks for sharing!! I'm sure the collection will grow, and wow, this in particular is a delicious memory, I love pumpkin pie!!
